Dailey & Vincent do The Statler Brothers

The new Dailey & Vincent CD, Dailey & Vincent Sing The Statler Brothers, will be a Cracker Barrel exclusive, available February 1.

If you’ve caught their live show, you will have heard some of their powerful reworkings of great Statler Brothers material, a few of which have made it to their two Rounder CDs. There is a mutual admiration between the two groups, with Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent having followed The Statlers since they were boys, and the elder statesmen of Gospel and country quartets readily grasping the skill and versatility of their young mentees.

Jamie is psyched by the opportunity this project affords.

“The Statler Brothers are my childhood heroes. My daddy bought me a Statler Brothers record in 1983, and I went to bed every night listening to that record.  I knew every word to every song. We’re delighted to work with Cracker Barrel on this project because we pull our bus into a Cracker Barrel every weekend; that’s where we have breakfast and lunch.”

Original Statler Don Reid says that the group is humbled by this tribute.

“Jamie and Darrin have used their magic touch to honor us and our music. This CD is one great tribute from two great friends. Dailey and Vincent – they are what good music and friendship is about today.”

Included are songs that will warm the heart of any Statler Brothers fan, and anyone who enjoys great quartet singing, arranged in a bluegrass style and performed by the Dailey & Vincent Band.
